Real Photos for Real People


What resonates with me? Real moments.

Sharing a moment with groomsmen smoking cigars around a fire pit at a reception. Getting up before dawn and waiting for the sun and tide to come together for just the right shot. That moment when my niece’s exuberance causes her to make a face in the middle of a photo session, which made it my brother's favorite image. Meeting new people—real people—and learning their stories.

Photography allows me to be in these moments and create memories from them. You cannot ask for more than that.

“Bob was wonderful. He spent so much time with us and made sure that we got every shot we wanted! He really got to know us on a personal level and the pictures capture the true love and joy of the day. Bob was fantastic and we highly recommend him. On time, professional and truly a great guy all around.”

“I am a little late to the review game here, but it has to be documented that Bob is a wonderful, fun photographer! I probably wasn’t the most organized “encore” bride and he just rolled with it…God love him! :) We were married outside and he captured THE MOST important moments to us at sunset! I could not have been happier with anyone else as my photography professional. My family and friends loved him and have enjoyed reliving the day through his work! He most definitely is the “photo dude” you want for any event!!”
